Two recs

  • The Medley of Élan Vital by [livejournal.com profile] sidhefaer.

    Astounding goodness, people. Tony and the making of Jarvis. It's mostly dialogue, which tells you how good it is if I not only got all the way through it, but adored it and have read it over and over and over and over again. Plus, the characterization of Tony. Plus, the characterization. Plus, the writing. Spare and precise as something really, really spare and precise.
    The next morning, Rhodey leaves, and Tony tells Jarvis all about hangovers.


  • Pools, part 1, by [livejournal.com profile] anvil_of_wrong.

    I mean, I can't even. I supposedly had something to do with this in that I suggested the basic narrative structure to [livejournal.com profile] montana_crows about tracing Tony's life through various stages of fuck-upedry by doing a series of short bits about pools. This is the one about Tony being a kid and Obie and Howard and the family house in the Adirondacks. It starts out easy enough, right? But then [livejournal.com profile] anvil_of_wrong just takes it and runs and forges not just wrong out of it, but something so goddamn right in the sparest, most precise and insightful language you can ever possibly imagine and, as a bonus, there is [livejournal.com profile] anvil_of_wrong's trademark ability to mix in history geekery, so that as you're reading, your mind just boggles at how she can know these things and fit them together so well. Also, the characterization.
    "Yeah, it's nice. Howard won it at Los Alamos or something. A bet with one of the guys."


    As usual: WHY ARE YOU STILL READING THIS POST. GO READ.

    I HAVE NO FIC FINDING SKILLS. I WAS POINTED TO BOTH OF THESE FIC, IN FACT, AND HAVE NOT WRITTEN ANYTHING IN AGES.

    Sigh. I miss you, Miss [livejournal.com profile] karabou.

    Did you read [livejournal.com profile] wildes's writeup of Tony's Christmas? There was one section that made me squeal out loud. No, I cannot lie. There were many sections that made me squeal out loud, but there was one that, I think, you and I would both particularly thrill to.

    Also, banging models on a balcony in full view of the Eiffel Tower, but then again, we thrill to so. many. things.

    That particle accelerator in England? Yeah, it's going to destroy us all by slamming two Obadiahs at each other.
